Farmers Market Margarita

Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! We celebrated with a nice Mexican meal at our favorite Mexican restaurant. We have been going to this particular restaurant  for about 18 years now. We go every weekend and have not gotten tired of it yet. I change my order up each time. All the staff know us and always seem excited to see us.

This is also the Month that our local Farmers Market opened in town. SO, I put the two together and decided to make a "Farmers Market Margarita".  Most of the ingredients for this drink you can get at your local farmers market.

 I will confess, I got my stuff from the grocery store around the block. I also had to make a trip to the liquor store up the road as well. Five minutes later, I made a crisp, lite, 99 calorie Margarita.

Farmers Market Margarita (99 calories)
1.25 oz. Silver Tequila (clear tequila)
2 sprigs of fresh cilantro
4 slices of fresh cucumber (thin with skin)
2 slices of fresh jalapeno (remove seeds)
1 oz. fresh lemon juice (1/2 lg. Lemon)
2 oz. water
2 packets of Splenda or similar

Directions: Add all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice, shake and serve over the rocks. Garnish with a lime.

I do not recommend anyone drink alcoholic drinks but this was a winner. This margarita had a fresh clean taste. You could actually taste the cucumber and cilantro. As far as the Jalapeno goes, It gave it some kick! Gave it some spice! It was defiantly something different and a little hot.

Warning: (1)Women should not drink alcohol while pregnant because of the risk of birth defects.(2)Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive.(3)Drinking to much alcohol may impair your thinking and make you stupid.

Twitter Newby

I have recently started actually using my Twitter account that I have had for almost a year now. I still don't really get it. I like the hash tag thing. Not sure I'm using them right but its fun. Using hash tags is like letting you mind speak after the fact.

I have always used facebook and still do but I'm trying to stay away from it unless I use it to post things to my "page".
Its just that its getting really ridiculous with all the pictures, recipes, cartoons, etc...
I remember when you used to actually type a status update from your own words. They should rename Facebook to "see and share". That's all everyone does now.

My biggest peeve on Facebook right now is how everyone is posting recipes so they can share and save on there timeline to go back and look at later. Isn't that what Pinterest is for? I mean, If these people only knew what they were missing. Pinterest is a great thing to save recipes and ideas and even funny stuff. You can share, like, follow friends and even comment on everyones pins.

So, that's why I'm trying to use my Twitter account more. I have actually got a few followers. And that's another thing. If a friend follows you, Its your choice if you want to follow them back without hard feelings. I do not have a twitter account for my blog. Its just a personal account right now at least until I can really figure it out.

What do you use the most for social interactions? Id love to know what you think about the two. I also could use any twitter advise you can give.

But for now, excuse me while I go see what James Purefoy is up to.
